- Ensemble Dark Horse: Tom. Played by Doug Walker, and is essentially just a Stepford Smiler Hot Librarian, but got his A Day in the Limelight episode first.
- Jerkass Woobie: Fittingly given who plays him, Tom, who gets played quite a bit darker (but still kid friendly) than the others. New to the town, gets rockets falling on him, tries to make friends but gets excluded, and is prone to frustration and tears. But he also likes wallowing in self-pity, doesn't want any fun, gets grouchy and cynical, and would rather die by zombies than have a sleepover with Cartoon Guy.
- Just Here for Godzilla: It's safe to say that TGWTG fandom just watches for the amusement of Doug trying so hard to be both suitable for kids and still be portraying a Jerkass Woobie.
